The role of search is expanding fast. As Web-type search moves from the Internet to inside the Enterprise for semantic analysis, it begins to identify facts inside documents, combines the information with structured databases, and provides true knowledge discovery. As analytics are increasingly derived from search, users can relate concepts to enable people to make decisions and get completeness and overview -- on the fly -- to provide, in essence, search-powered business intelligence (BI). The mega trends of Web 2.0, Enterprise 2.0 and the Semantic Web give search more content to consider, and more power. Search is becoming more than a starting point on information discovery, it is becoming the flexible interface to complex decision-making, analytics, and BI. To better understand these transitions, join moderator Dana Gardner and FAST Search & Transfer CEO John Markus Lervik, CTO Bjorn Olstad, and Zia Zaman, the Senior Vice President of Strategic Marketing as we explore the future direction of enterprise search amid the Enterprise 2.0 and Semantic Web era.
